State of the live streaming’ Facebook, YouTube, Twitch and now Twitter (Periscope)

Adafruit 1814
Last night we live streamed to 4 social networks/services – Facebook, YouTube, Twitch and now Twitter (Periscope). Periscope recently announced it supports RMTP, which means video broadcasting tools can use that to broadcast to instead of using the phone directly. We were able to do what we believe was the first ever 1 hour “quadcast” to 4 services of our weekly live electronics show, “ASK AN ENGINEER”.

Here’s the Periscope version (video), over 1,000+ live viewers.

Facebook was about 900+ total unique live viewers (however, says “9,000 reached” at this time), YouTube about 280+ live viewers, Twitch was about 50+. Our show happened to be before the debate so these numbers will go up and down each week.

We’ve also heard “crowdfunding” companies are going to be offering a live video streaming service too at some point, that’s a really good idea – backers could see the progress “live” at times and it would like eliminately a lot of the issues with hardware projects when the backers can ask questions directly to the teams.

Live video is part of the “good information is advertising” strategy good companies will have to develop. If you make things, share it, live, with your community.



Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote

  1. Wow, congrats on the accomplishment! Can you describe what switching / encoding setup you used? Or was it as simple as passing all the 4 services the same stream endpoint?
